Stand Up Paddle is a sport similar to surfing, the difference is, that you use a paddle to move forward and you are standing on the board. This sport, like most of the other water sports, is coming from Hawaii, where it is practised since the 50 ties. Since a few years already the S.U.P has arrived in Europe and is enjoying since 2010 a big success. However, this is really not surprising. No matter if you head out into flat water or waves, if it’s windy or windless, if you see S.U.P as pure workout or as an relaxing trip over the sea – it’s great fun in any conditions, it trains your body and improves your balance and it can be done by anyone.
To start with, the easiest way is to be on your knees and as you get more secure progressively stand up on the board. Let the fun begin !
All participants must know how to swim
In Essaouira, if you have the good luck of a flat day with no wind you’ll have the opportunity to discover on a SUP the unknown steeped in history islands of Mogador. A bird reserve and an amazing archipelago of tiny islands, caves, and hidden beaches.
Feel free to use our Stand Up paddle boards if you have booked a minimum of 3 consecutive days of windsurf or kitesurf rental, we won’t charge any extras for it !
If you are not a guest already, you have the possibility to rent it of course.
A word about
ION CLUB Essaouira
Essaouira is a charming coastal town of 78,000 inhabitants, located in the center of Morocco on the Atlantic coast, with endless beaches in and around the town. It has been a favourite destination for windsurfers, kitesurfers and surfers from all over the world for a very long time. The architecture of the old town is strongly influenced by Berber, Portuguese and French culture. The massive appearance of the walls around the old town gives it a mystical sublimity, and it is easy to see why it was once called "Mogador", which translates as "little fortress".
Essaouira is not only an incredible kitesurfing and windsurfing spot, but it also has a huge cultural potential and history.
May, June, July, August, September
The wind blows mainly side shore in Essaouira, and comes from the right when looking at the sea. Some days it is less regular, more gusty, and turns slightly offshore (from the land). Between June and August the thermal wind strengthens the trade winds, so the wind becomes stronger. The kitesurfing, windsurfing and wingfoil center of ION CLUB Essaouira does courses in the morning, and the thrill seekers mainly sail in the afternoon. You will find some of the same atmosphere of Lassarga or Dakhla Lagoon in the south of Morocco, where two other ION CLUBs have settled in the same serene place. Kitesurfing, wingfoil, surfing and windsurfing are sports that are very important in Morocco.
Wave conditions are particularly good in spring and autumn (1 to 2 meters). Due to the strong wind, the waves are slightly smaller between June and August (0.5 to 1 meters). Otherwise, the spot in the bay of Essaouira is choppy/slightly choppy.
